TROY - The countdown has begun to what is usually one of the biggest Thanksgiving Day races around.

Troy's Turkey Trot will be virtual this year. It'll run Thanksgiving morning through Saturday, November 28.

Thousands of people usually take part.

Troy Mayor Pat Madden joined with Ethan Baker, the mayor of Troy, Michigan for the start of the countdown Thursday morning. Baker's dad actually grew up in Albany.

Madden is inviting people from other Troys in other states to participate this year.

This is the 73rd year for the Troy Turkey Trot.
